Custom Bolt On Bass / Jan Müller Tocotronic

Custom Bass for Jan Müller / Tocotronic

»Jan asked me to built him a dearly desired long scale bass, which was supposed to be as comfortable as his old shortscale basses. I already made a design for a bass called »Bellstar« and so I shrunk it a bit to accommodate Jan’s taste.
The bass has a classic bolt on construction. The body is made out of light swamp ash, the neck from hard rock maple with indian rosewood. We chose light hardware from Hipshot, so the overall weight turned out pretty comfortable. Finally the bass sound of Tocotronic had more long scale bottom!«
